TWO PART QUESTION
I am 15 years old and have been working on learning programming language. I though it would be a good idea to start with python before C as C is much more complicated and I would like to have a basic understanding of programming before I dive in. i am using a Educational website my dad set me up with (he is an expert programmer and Linux user) and I wish to make Python 2 my default. when i run the python in my terminal i get this
$ python Python 3.4.3 (default, Mar 25 2015, 17:13:50) [GCC 4.9.2 20150304 (prerelease)] on linux Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>>
But if I run python2 it is installed
$ python2 Python 2.7.9 (default, Dec 11 2014, 04:42:00) [GCC 4.9.2] on linux2 Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>>
So how can i make python2 which is installed my default instead of python3
I have gedit installed and would like to make it my default text editor over Kate.
An answer for both question would help a lot.
